New Wacky Packages Series!

I have written two gags, painted one image, drawn 72 sketch cards and drawn the art for the back of the postcards on the new limited edition Halloween Wacky Packages postcard set. These are to go on sale at the Topps Online store at around 11am est on Wednesday the 20th. These tend to sell out in a matter of hours, so if you are interested, get in there right away. This looks like a wonderful set with a lot of strong images, I will add a photo when I can tomorrow.

Spookshow Funnies series 2 Coming soon!

Series two will start numbering where series one left off, and will contain at least 18 cards. I have some fun ideas about packaging I hope will work out. At this point, it looks like they will be ready in late November.

Since no self respecting 2nd card series uses the same border color, here is what this series will look like.

More info to come.

2 Upcoming Halloween Shows

Fall has finally arrived, even down here in New Orleans! Hooray! I thought I had burnt out on the Autumnal feeling with all the work leading up to Halloween & Vine, but I am being renewed by chilly nights and ever shrinking daylight.

I have pieces in a couple upcoming group shows. First up is the Madman's Masquerade in Kingston, NY. On October 16th. This link has more info. I will have a couple die cuts as well as these 2 new pieces.

Next Up is MF Galleries 8th Annual Halloween art show being held in Genova, Italy, more info here

I will have these 2 pieces at that show

I just noticed Joe Simko will also have work in this show, which is an odd coincidence because he just painted one of my gags for the upcoming Wacky Packages Postcard series, and He did a WONDERFUL job! Thanks Joe!
